        $locationId = $input->getArgument( 'location_id' );

            // We first try to load the location so that a NotFoundException is thrown if the Location doesn't exist
            $location = $locationService->loadLocation( $locationId );
            $locationService->deleteLocation( $location );

            $output->writeln( "No location with id $locationId" );
